Indulgence Divine makes the front cover of Flair
It was imperative that a site about the quirky and original in travel be in itself unique. Brainchild of Garri Rayne, known for his fresh approach in the travel industry, the site gets rid of all clutter and pares it down to one succinct haiku per property. Indulgence Divine is proud to be featured in hotelhaiku and is one of the notels - new term meaning not a hotel. The website's tagline is Home is where the art is.

"Gattaldo took as his inspiration for the interior design of this typical small-scale townhouse the historical links that Vittoriosa had with religion - the seat of the archbishop was here before Valletta was built - and excess of all sorts. Yet the design itself is spare, relying on simple but exceptional forms and highlighted with zinging colour. There is certainly no dark mahagony, no crimson damask or scarlet velvet and gilded pelmets. It is all very serene, a good holiday base for popping out and walking the surrounding streets or taking trips to different parts of the island."

“For the last 18 months or so Aldo has been painstakingly overseeing the restoration of his latest project, Indulgence Divine that is located in Vittoriosa in Malta.
Vittoriosa, or Birgu as the locals refer to it, is an ancient city located on the south side of the Grand Harbour in Malta. It was also once home to the Inquisitors Palace, the headquarters for the Papal Inquisition in 1574, which was built in the Norman period to house the court of Justice.
What I love most about Aldo is that rather than do away with centuries of history and culture, he cleverly chooses to intertwine such rich themes into his design process, resulting in a contemporary style that is distinctly Aldo and unique to him.”
